Studio Photography – A hands on overview for  beginners

A one day course providing an introduction to studio photography, this session is restricted to a maximum of twelve photographers and will consist of a short discussion on the equipment available and the different lighting styles achievable with a simple one or two light set up , followed by hands on sessions setting up lighting for particular styles.

All participants will have an opportunity to practice their new found skills, so a camera is essential and you will have the chance to work with a model or on a still life set to create your own images.

The day will give you the following:

  • An understanding of light
  • Introducing additional light into the scene
  • Modifying the light
  • Creating a simple set
  • Working with models
  • Still life
  • Post production

The day will be run in association with Michael Crowe Photography.

Michael has been providing high quality wedding photography for many years and also provides clients with portrait sittings, not just in a purpose built studio, but also in their own home environment. This experience allows him to fully understand the restrictions and limitations of a home studio and provide realistic training goals that are fully achievable and can be developed in your own home.

Tea and coffee are provided and you will have the opportunity to order lunch if you so wish. It must be observed that any food not purchased at the hotel cannot be consumed on the premises.
